Microsoft and OLPC Agree To Put XP On the XO Laptop

lspd Re:Choice is Good (530 comments)

They're not presenting a fair set of choices. You can get OLPCs with a very locked down and quirky interface that has only a handful of applications available and presents many barriers to developers (Sugar) or you can get it with a traditional interface and access to an existing pool of software (Windows.) For some reason providing a cleaned up GNOME or KDE interface isn't being presented as an option.

OLPC can hardly blame the Linux community for the fact that the Sugar UI/API and the Journal were mistakes.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
